Linked below is the Council’s report on the hundreds of comments received in response to the proposed Lanark Road, Longstone Road and Inglis Green Road Spaced for People Scheme.
The report confirms that “over 300 emails [were] received both in favour and against“, but does not note the balance of opinion (I have asked for that information). It does note, however, that a “public petition with over 1,000 signatures opposing the proposals was submitted to Councillors on 12 October“.
It appears that many comments have been dismissed or dealt with superficially – this is particularly true of comments raised by Community Councils and disability groups.
For example, the Edinburgh Access Panel say: “Please ensure the provision of access and parking for blue badge holders in the roads affected by your proposals is at least equivalent to the current provision“. The Council simply responds saying: “Parking and Loading access has been retained as far as possible”.
It appears that Lothian Buses were not consulted.
